Great bang for the buck

While I had read some reviews that said the TV would burn out quickly, I decided to go ahead and get it anyways. Overall I am very impressed with the TV, for the price you really can't beat the clarity or picture. The built-in speakers are mediocre but that's because the tv is so thin. Most people just buy sound bars anyways. My only complaint is the backlighting. I had to turn it down significantly when I first bought it, if you are watching a dark movie you will notice that some of the edges are inexplicably brighter than the rest of the screen. However this can be easily overlooked when you consider the price of the tv.

Great price and smooth gaming quality.

Shipping arrival scared me to death since the package was a bit worse for wear but it was well insulated and was perfect. I use this for PC gaming and it runs my setting on ultra very smoothly and great picture quality after I played with the settings a bit ( it arrived with power saver as the default picture presets). I'd pick up a sound bar if you're looking for sound the size of the TV...but I'm very pleased with my purchase so far.

Bought 2 of these amazing TVs

Bought 2 of these for placement at the foot of my bed. I am extremely near-sighted (-5.50) and can only read if a book is within 6 inches of my face. Yes too close for comfort. So I got 2 huge TVs, hooked them up to my computers and DVR, and now I can read e-books on this pretty much giant kindle, or watch TV without needing glasses. Yes both TVs side by side are wider than a King bed. Yes I can't see the rest of the room, but I can't see crap anyways so what do I care.

The TVs have 2 hour sleep timers and a ton of other options. Just like any TV when you get it you need to adjust the color, contrast, brightness. (if you haven't you should). The only problem I've found with this TV is that it doesn't hold the CUSTOM backlight setting. If you turn off the TV and fire it back up, it stays on custom, and all the color, contrast, brightness, sharpness, stays how you set it, just the backlight kicks in to 100%. Kind of annoying since if you use it to read and stare at the screen you'll get a migraine with it at 100%. Around 50% you can see it dimming and around 30% it's comfortable to read with. Watching TV you blink more than when reading. So you get little breaks with your eyes with it as a TV and blinking. Reading is staring almost and even with it set to white text on black background it's still bright enough to give you headaches and make your eyes bloodshot. Yes these are some powerful LEDs...

I love this TV it is a good price for a 50" screen and has all the right features, including 3 slots for HDTV. It is lightweight so one person can pick it up. I was initially concerned that it was not a name brand that I knew, but the manufacture seems on par with Sony.

Pleasantly Surprised

Purchased this TV last month and based on value for purchase it is a great buy. My one main concern was the sound quality. Like most LED TV's the sound was sub-par. As i use a surround system it is not an issue. Without it, the sound is very shallow, no depth what so ever.

Great TV

I am a current proud owner of the Sceptre Komodo, and had an old Sony projection TV in my game room. When the projection TV died I decided to replace it with the Komodo and looked for a new LED TV. I found the features, quality and size I wanted at a fantastic price at Amazon. I had no questions as to the dependability of Sceptre's TV as my Komodo is over 10yrs old and still as vibrant in colors as the day I bought it. I am looking forward to a long wonderful viewing experience with the new E505BV-FMQK.

Amazing deal, great TV

Wow! For such a large TV, we got an amazing deal. It is our first mounted flat screen, and we have enjoyed it so much.

-January 14, 2016
So far so good

This is an incredible TV at the price point - it's hard to tell the difference in picture quality from big name brands anyway.

Hard to really knock the picture quality - it's great. No backlight bleed like my terrible 70" aquos - it's crystal clear, crisp. I changed some settings like turn on memc, dynamic contrast. I reduced contrast slightly (by like 5, not sure if it matters with the dynamic contrast), increased color and sharpness settings by about 5. I may still mess with it, but it seems pretty nice with those settings ( not that default was bad)

I already had a sound bar I use with it, so can't judge the sound - but frankly none of these slim LED backlit TVs have good sound - you can get a basic sound bar for $50-100, mines a bit fancier with a subwoofer and such but no problem. No idea why anybody would knock it for bad speakers.

The stand is nice and sturdy, but I only used it for a day before I put it on the wall.

Remote is basic and lackluster, but I don't use it.

No smart TV, but I don't like smart TVs. I have an Xbox one hooked to it (which I also have a remote for, and run the cable through) which is the reason I never use the remote. Xbox one totally replaces a smart TV and more without the awful, slow interface. More practically on a budget I'd be fine with a roku stick or a Chromecast.

Overall it's great, can't get s better deal. I hope it lasts awhile but I don't foresee any issues.

I am very pleased with this 50 inch 1080 LED set

I am very pleased with this 50 inch 1080 led set. It took about a week for it to burn in though so give it some time, because at first I was not too impressed. The memc really improves the image from 60 hz to 120 hz and it's an upgrade over another sceptre lcd that I had. It performs really well with video games that I have played on it like Fallout 4, The Witcher 3, The Crew and Star Wars Battlefront. Movies are also really good looking on it as well as sports.

When I compare this set to the other ones in my house that include a Vizio , LG , Sony and Hisense this one ranks number one. It is absolutely worth the price and it can compete with any brand out there and probably come out on top.

Excellent 50in TV

I received the tv in a timely fashion. There was no damage to the product through the shipping process. It was rather easy to set-up. This is a really good tv. It has great picture and focus. You may need to change picture settings to suit your preference. The sound is decent, not great. This is no problem for me as I use speakers for my sound set-up. I also purchased a sceptre sound bar. With this new tv, I really want a sound system to handle both my computer and tv. Overall, I am very satisfied with my purchase. Looking forward to enjoying it for a few years.

Good TV

A good solid TV. The seller shipped a 60hz version instead of the 120hz version. Fortunately the price was still good enough that I didn't much care. The sound on the TV, as would be expected with flat screen speakers, is a little tinny. The bass of explosions and voices really doesn't come through well. I highly recommend a speaker bar or surround sound system.

This TV has been amazing for me

This TV has been amazing for me. I have had it for a few months now and I am really thrilled with it. The picture quality is amazing. A few things about it to warn, the base is pretty wide, but there's no bottom of it so it's tough to put it on anything other than a flat surface like a table. I was hoping to rest it on my receiver (it's in a secondary bedroom and it's an old receiver I'm not too concerned if it breaks) but it was just a tad too unstable so I couldn't. Also the remote is horrible...there's really no other way to say it. It's cheap and I'd recommend using another remote. Really any other remote. But for the basics it does work, I can't really complain except I use Harmony remotes so I'm sort of a snob. The refresh is great I don't see any artifacts or anything, there is not much heat given off either. Admittedly I have not tried any of the fine tuning of the picture (if it even offers that) I got this for the bedroom where I watch the occasional movie or game. But for the price...I couldn't be happier. Thanks Sceptre!

Great value TV for the price!

Sceptre makes great TV's that surpass every other manufacturer in their class. When you compare the price, I could have bought 2 more Sceptres for the amount I spent on XXX brand. I have two Sceptre's in my house and I can tell you the picture is beautiful. This TV has an LED backlit screen and in my honest opinion this definitely is the way to go (LED is similar to LCD but it is more energy efficient and lasts longer). Now add in that this TV can directly connect to a ROKU stick and I'm sold. Thanks to Amazon.com, and Sceptre, HDTVs have never been more affordable.

Beautiful. clear picture

I purchased this only days ago after hours research of TV monitors of near or same size. I'm extremely pleased with this 50 incher so far. Other than adding my own powered speakers I've had no problems. Set up was extremely easy and I was viewing within 10 minutes. The "in" case speakers are okay for a smaller rooms I suppose but not for big boom sound or vocal clarity over background music or sound effects from movies and laugh tracks. (just supposing about the comedy TV shows since I don't do local TV, or cable, or network or programming period!!)

Great TV for the money

You can't go wrong getting this tv. All I did was set it up and adjusted the sound. The picture quality is great. The sound is not the best. If you are just watching tv on it the sound is fine. When you go to watch an action movie the sound is not the best. The remote for it, you have to be directly inline with the tv. It does not work well from the side. Over all this tv is great. I would buy another one.

-March 5, 2015
Great value for the price!

Screen is very clear and sharp. Sound seems fine though a little on the quiet side. The user interface for changing inputs is a little counter intuitive. On most TVs pressing input multiple times changes the selection, this requires hitting up and down arrows after selecting input and then hitting enter. Had one issue with shipping, but was handled very well once customer service was informed, though the on-line chat was not so helpful. Overall, very happy with our purchase.
